MIS partners with city of Missoula for elk spotting program
The City of Missoula is working to protect elk habitats on Mount Jumbo during the later months, and it is asking community members of all ages for help.
The Missoula International School is next to Mount Jumbo, and it is teaming up with the city’s parks and recreation department to keep an eye on elk. The school’s youngest students will use binoculars to watch for elk through a window. Older students will head out to the play yard to track elk through a scope.
